Need help putting up an article
I want to put up an essay that's under the GNU Free Docement Lisence, and I want to ask for a little bit of tips on how to do it before I actually do it. Or even how I'm suppose to do it. --Foxpaws 00:52, 15 September 2006 (UTC)
- Could you be more specific about what you're trying to do? If you have a GFDL essay from another place, then in general it's fine to just copy it here into a new page as long as you give attribution for the people who wrote it (for example, with Wikipedia you would link to the history page) and preferably link back to the original source. Of course, it would have to fit the topic of the wiki, and be neutral in tone. If it was not neutral (whether or not you wrote it), you should probably avoid putting it in the main namespage - it should go a subpage of your User: space - e.g User:Foxpaws-zupe/Article name - and it should have a note up at the top similar to that of the personal article template. --GreenReaper(talk) 04:22, 15 September 2006 (UTC)
- I believe the piece in question is my own Rabbiting On , which I note (with some surprise) is now linked to from the Furry article's "Resources" section. Foxpaws-zupe is correct that RO is GFDL-licensed, but I would certainly not claim it to be a neutral bit of writing; it's quite opinionated in places. Loganberry (Talk) 01:20, 10 October 2006 (UTC)
